  • Creative Commons Tools [Link]

"The Creative Commons organisation (CC) has written a suite of licenses allowing copyright holders to specify the conditions under which others can copy or distribute their works, and to identify works that are in the public domain. The License Chooser and Public Domain Tools are web-based applications that walk the user through the license options, and then provide HTML reflecting the chosen license for the user to embed within their website."

"The Tufts Submission-Agreement Builder Tool (SABT) is a web-based tool that guides records creators and records managers through the process of creating submission agreements, both for single transfers and for standing submissions. Following an accompanying XML schema, the tool prompts the user to input data that has been determined to be necessary for a complete agreement, ultimately producing a finished document."

"This work investigates using subject librarians to conduct copyright clearance in an insti-tutional repository (IR). At Utah State University, the library assures copyright clearance for faculty scholarship, thereby garnering input of faculty scholarship into the IR. Cur-rently, subject librarians are not widely participating in routine IR work; however, the in-volvement of subject librarians with the IR offers benefits to the subject librarians and the institution as a whole. This article provides a model for institutions needing new so-lutions for copyright clearance using subject librarians and discusses the rationale, benefits and challenges of adopting this model."
